What is Confidential Waste?

Confidential waste refers to any information, typically in paper form, that needs to be securely destroyed to prevent unauthorised access, identity theft, fraud, or breach of privacy. This can include:

  • Employee records
  • Financial statements
  • Customer or client databases
  • Legal documents
  • Medical records
  • Business contracts and agreements
  • Personal identification documents
  • Internal communications

Our Process:

1. Secure Collection:
Your sensitive documents are collected in sealed, tamper-evident containers or bags by our vetted and trained staff, ensuring no unauthorized access during transit.

2. Monitored Destruction:
The waste is securely transported to our facilities where it’s destroyed under constant surveillance. Our cutting-edge shredding equipment ensures documents are rendered unreadable and irrecoverable.

3. Certificate of Destruction:
Post-destruction, we provide you with a Certificate of Destruction, offering legal proof that your confidential waste has been securely and compliantly destroyed.

4. Recycling:
After shredding, the waste is baled and sent for recycling, adhering to our commitment to environmental sustainability.

Benefits of Confidential Waste Collection:

  • Legal Compliance: Ensure you meet data protection regulations and standards, such as GDPR.
  • Protect Reputation: Prevent potential PR disasters stemming from data breaches or leaks.
  • Environmental Stewardship: All shredded waste is recycled, reducing your carbon footprint.
  • Cost-Effective: Outsourcing this process is often more cost-effective than in-house shredding, given equipment and labor costs.
